I simply love a great chicken piccata. It’s simple, zingy, fresh and utterly delicious. The best part? It’s a quick dish to throw together in a few minutes, and though it comes out looking fancy as anything, you don’t need complicated or hard-to-get ingredients.
So, what makes a great chicken piccata?
To make a fantastic chicken piccata, you’re going to need the following basics
Simple as that! You’ll fillet, pound and season the chicken – skipping the dredging and dipping, because who has time for that – and pan fry the chicken. Make the sauce in the same pan, keeping all those flavourful sticky bits for your sauce, and voila! It’s essentially a one-pan wonder.
Enjoy this divine little dish on its own, or serve it alongside your favourite sides. We’re partial to this mash.

Frequently Asked Questions
What wine should I use to make the chicken piccata?
A dry white wine will be perfect to use in this recipe. If you don’t have wine, you can use more stock; however, the flavour will not be as piquant without it.
Why add cold butter to the piccata sauce at the end?
Adding cold butter to the sauce helps the ingredients to emulsify, adding shine and rich buttery flavour to the sauce.
